Question about Pioneer DV-220V-K DVD Player
This may seem silly, but have you run a "lens cleaning" disk through the machine? If you haven't tried this I would suggest it. They're available at places like Walmart, Best Buy, etc. DVD players are more sensitive to optical difficulties because the size of the beam is much smaller than on a CD. I would also try a Audio CD. Not MP3 but store bought. If the CD works and DVD doesn't, it is usually dust.
If the CD does not work, check to see if it is slipping in the drive mechanism with the result that it is not turning fast enough to get a good read. Last but not least the bearings in the spin motor are beginning to lack lubricant. When manufactured the oil is impregnated into the pores of the brass bearings at each end of the motor shaft. I have had success had drilling a TINY hole in the moter end next to the bearing and spraying in "TV Tuner or control cleaner and lubricant aerosol". I DO NOT recommending doing this for any equipment that is under factory warranty. This problem initially manifests itself on older units that have been on for several hours. So I doubt it is happening with your player. Hope this helps,

Well the laser pickup assembly is the problem it is not reading the disc, the only thing I can suggest is take it apart and expose the laser pickup lens, take a Q-Tip and dip it in rubbing alcohol and carefully clean the plastic lens in a circular motion, let it dry for several minutes before testing.
